Small son

How can this child
Son of a poet and graduate scientist
be so word blind?
Anything longer than two
letters leaves him baffled
groping for meaning
So like becomes look
and luck sounds like yucky
but still he tries
Carefully copying out
the alphabet from an ant
to a zebra
Trying to fix
those darned moving letters
into place in his head
School makes him feel
stupid. He wants
to stay at home.
to practise until
he is good enough
to go back.
